Candace Owens: ‘Defending Violent Criminals Proves You're Dumb, Not Black'
Conservative activist declares 'TRUTH doesn’t back down to the mob'
Conservative activist Candace Owens has blasted those who throw their unquestioning supports behind Black Lives Matter protests.
Taking to Twitter this week, Owens argued that defending "violent criminals" like George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks "doesn’t prove you’re black.”
Instead, "it proves you’re dumb," Owens told her fellow African Americans.
Owens has been under attack from members of the black community for her critical stance on the BLM movement.
“When REAL men like Larry Elder, Thomas Sowell, Ben Carson, Clarence Thomas disagree w/ me—I’ll know I’m on the wrong side,” she declared.

TRUTH doesn’t back down to the mob.
In a separate tweet, Owens also accused African American society and the left of “sanctifying criminals.”
“George Floyd: high on fentanyl and trying to use a counterfeit bill after 9 prison stints.”
“Rayshard Brooks: drunk-driving while on probation for beating his wife & kids.
“Why don’t you COWARDS stop pretending these people were changing their lives?
“STOP SANCTIFYING CRIMINALS.”

STOP SANCTIFYING CRIMINALS.
According to Owens, the Democratic Party is “trying to inspire a race war” in an election year in collusion with the mainstream media.
She is urging her African American compatriots to stop rioting and acting “like a trained chimpanzee every single time the media runs a story.“
“That’s how you have to be black? Listen to your psychological conditioning,” Owens said.
"If to be black, you can’t speak in proper English, or you’re 'acting white.' Right?
"To be black, you instantly have to jump up like a ****** trained chimpanzee – excuse my language – like a trained chimpanzee every single time the media runs a story, and act angry, and riot, and talk about how pained you were to see this happen to black people, but keep your mouth shut, right, when it happens black-on-black because if you talk about the black-on-black crime, you’re a race traitor, right?”
Owens adds that black Americans can learn from the example set by Scottish people in the 17th century.
"Scottish people were severely behind the English people, just in terms of everything,” Owens said.
"And David Hume inspired and uplifted and challenged the Scottish people by saying if we want to get ahead, we have to learn English.
"In a matter of years, in a matter of decades, the Scottish people passed the English people in engineering, and in the sciences.
"And it’s because they challenged themselves to be better, and not to be worse.
"They didn’t pretend that somehow having a broken language, having broken-down families was a symbol of who we are.”
